Seth Rollins, Adam Cole Express Interest In Wrestling Each Other

Even with Adam Cole preparing to face Matt Riddle for the NXT Championship, he's expressed an interest in taking on Seth Rollins.

During the debut episode of The Bump, Rollins and Cole appeared on the show and Cole was about his thoughts on Rollins, the first man to be the NXT Champion, after Cole recently appeared on Lilian Garcia's podcast. Cole, who previously said he wants to wrestle Rollins, reiterated his interest in making that match possible.

"It's awesome that you were the first NXT Champion, but you're looking at the best NXT Champion right now. I was coming into a company as Seth was leaving. I wrestled all over the world for 10 years in Japan, Australia, Mexico, all across the United States, Europe and Seth is a guy I have never wrestled. He's a guy I hold very highly and I think a lot of the fans would love to see Adam Cole face Seth Rollins," Cole said.

Rollins would go on to say that with the way WWE has made changes to its several shows and more coming in the WWE Draft, such a match is possible.

"I think it would be a hell of a match. We've had careers that sort of paralleled each other, but we've never crossed paths. As the first NXT Champion to the current NXT Champion, I would love to see that happen. Who knows if it will ever happen with the way things are laying right now. It would definitely be a hell of a match and it would be an honor," Rollins said.
